High Key Figure in Landscape Painting with Dan Schultz
When & Where
This workshop will be a focused study of figurative painting in the high-key color range. As you may know, figures are among the most difficult subjects because of their dependence on accuracy. Dan will help you learn how to achieve a likeness by training your eyes to see more accurately. Color, especially the high-key range, will be explored in-depth, along with the other fundamental principles of art including design, value, edges, and texture. A focus will also be given to the idea of capturing a sense of feeling in our work. At the end of the workshop, you will acquire the principles and techniques needed to continue the refinement of your painting. You will be able to take what you learn to explore your original ideas for more high-key paintings in the future.
